this country back to where it needs to be. my question for the debate was what did obama right about at harvard? we don't have access to newspapers. he always talked about being transparent. i would like to hear what he was writing about and harvard. host: on facebook -- and you can read more on our facebook page. jeffrey in michigan on the democratic line. caller: good morning. thanks for letting me talk on c- span. i don't plan on watching the debate, because it's going to be the same old thing over and over again. i am fairly well-informed. you've got so many people that are uninformed and they call in to c-span. they give us such a great opportunity to speak and then get such ignorant people calling in. i listen, i read, and i inform myself. obama is not really doing anything as far as i can see. i don't blame him for the jobs and that kind of stuff. what i don't like about him is he is keeping this war going. i listen to some independents yesterday and they made more sense than anybody. we are just wasting money on other countries and people are really suffering here. we probably won't get
think neither candidate right now has a comprehensive plan that leads the six principles we're talking about. president obama does not really have a plan because his plan is his budget but his budget was rejected unanimously by the senate and house in the last two years so he has to start over again. mitt romney has a plant -- p lan he has not provided enough specifics and some of the specifics, the numbers did not at that. that is why it is critically important for both to be most pacific -- more specific, more solutions oriented in the debate so we can make an informed choice about who to support and they can claim they have a mandate. the people can then be involved to help get a fiscal burden next year. it is critically important. >> will you be watching the presidential debates? >> yes, i watched them. >> as you watch them and have watched them and you recall your own participation 20 years ago, what do you think about when you see these debates that have happened since then? >> not much. [laughter] this maneuvering back and forth. that is what i would call it. >> last question --
of these -- a tension of these two conflicting rights going on here. rule proposed by the obama administration says these church institutions had to provide comprehensive health care for their employees. many catholics and many as opponents -- and many proponents of religious liberty oppose the obama that is rationed. but to its great credit, the obama and a trace of proposed a compromise, that such employees would be covered for contraception, but the institution would not have to pay for it. ms. fluke called that a brilliant solution. no compromise is perfect by definition, but nonetheless, it seemed to me this was an ideal way to handle a situation. unfortunately, the united states bishops failed to go along with it and post it in the name of religious freedom. i think they have forgotten the freedom and rights of other people. i think compromise is an ideal way to solve these issues. it has been dead in the past. it has not always been done. let's face it, the whole political spectrum today, both left and right, is unwilling to compromise. it's always going to be hard to work out. let me close
. "the new york times" rights abroad this, the continuity about obama and bush, for that matter. they only changed things 10 degrees one way or the other. there will be some issues. obviously, there's no question that romney takes a different view on how to deal with russia. on iran, it's harder call, for instance. maybe you're going to get to this eventually, -- >> we are only 25 minutes in. i consider it to be an on unreasonable possibility regardless of who is in the white house that the united states might end up engaging in military action with iran, what will that do to all of these consensuses about spending and whether american people are injected in foreign policy and issues like the defense budget? as issues like that and the ones we do not even know about that make me wary of all of these straight line projections we're making in the future of based on what things look like right now. >> which point? >> any of them. but i meant the one about iran and the likelihood we would enter into that regardless of who wins. what's right now, it's not clear to me. >> question fro
brought a degree of urgency. one approach calls for the lowering of individual rights across the board and the reduction of existing tax exemptions. president obama and some democrats have called for continuing the bush tax cuts for middle income families. what do you think is the best approach to individual tax rate that can reduce the deficit? >> we do need to make sure we're not raising taxes, especially in this tough economy. what is good for the country is to create jobs. that is how we get going again to help manage down that debt. we do not want to raise taxes. we want comprehensive reform. when companies are looking to relocate, it is not always attracted to locate here because we're the highest taxed locale. we need to bring the corporate tax rates down and to make sure we change the peculiarly in tax law which forces american based multinationals. we need to make sure they did not pay taxes twice if they are operating abroad. we did not have a territorial system. we have a system which ties one hand behind the back. we want them here. they create jobs. we know the overwhelmin
